Iron Sharpens Iron

January 21, 2022

Iron-sharpeners are leaders and team-builders that align, utilize and sharpen the talents and strengths of others.

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” - Proverbs 27:17

This week, I (Farmer Pat) stepped off the farm to attend the American Pastured Poultry Producers Association (APPPA) Conference in Jacksonville, Florida. This conference gathered more than 160+ pastured poultry farmers from the U.S. and other countries together to share their wisdom.  As a board member, I helped facilitate conversations with other farmers around topics like layer production, soil health, meat quality, staff training, home delivery, and dozens of other topics. The creativity and genius in the conference hall was incredible. 

This is my last conference as a board member and I have been truly blessed to serve with all of these amazing farmer friends from around the country. The community of pastured poultry producers is strong and powerful and I encourage you to support these growers, no matter where you live.

It was a humbling and thought provoking few days and I am totally energized to continue to bring our community the healthiest and most delicious pasture-raised chicken. 2022 is going to be a phenomenal year and this conference and all the attendees inspired me to keep pressing forward!

Check out this video below from APPPA about the benefits of pasture poultry.
